New York developer eyeing tower on 5th
By JOURNAL STAFF

A New York-based firm called Douglaston Development may be the latest to join Seattle's building bonanza.

City records show Douglaston is considering putting a 50-story hotel, residential and retail complex at 1933 Fifth Ave., where the Icon Grill now sits. Current plans call for 360 units, including apartments and 155 hotel rooms, as well as 200 parking spaces.

Representatives of Douglaston did not return a phone call requesting comment.

Perkins + Will appears to be working on the project, according to city records.

Douglaston's project would be on the same block where Stanford Hotels Corp. wants to build a 50-story hotel, apartment and condo complex. The Stanford site is at 1903 Fifth Ave.

Douglaston and Stanford aren't the only ones building big hotels in the Denny Triangle. With the proximity to Amazon.com's new campus, and the possibility of an expansion at the Washington State Convention Center, this area has become a hotbed for hotel development.

Here's a look at some of the other hotel projects in the neighborhood:

• 1821 Boren Ave. Touchstone Corp. is building Hill7, which will have a 14-story, 222-room Hilton Garden Inn and an 11-story office building. The hotel is scheduled to open this year.

• 924 Howell St. Stonebridge Cos., which was close to landing the site on Fifth Avenue where Stanford's project will be, is planning a 17-story Residence Inn by Marriott with 309 rooms.

• 9th and Stewart R.C. Hedreen Co. is planning the largest hotel in the neighborhood. It will be either 41 stories with about 1,650 rooms or 45 stories with about 1,260 rooms, depending on whether the city grants Hedreen an alley vacation.

• 2116 Fourth Ave. Lobsang Dargey's Path America is constructing the 40-story Potala Tower Seattle, with a 142-room Hotel Indigo and 339 housing units.

• 1121 Stewart St. RBF Property Group and GIS International Group are planning a skinny 42-story hotel and condo tower.

Douglaston's website says it has three companies: Douglaston Development, Levine Builders and Clinton Management, all led by Jeffrey Levine.

It says over the past seven years Douglaston has completed projects valued at $1.5 billion including 3,000 apartments, 2 million square feet of retail and 500 hotel rooms in New York City, and senior housing in the southwest.

One of the company's major projects is a 1 million-square-foot, mixed-use complex called The Edge, on a seven-acre site along the East River in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.

The Edge has 565 condos in two towers, 347 affordable units in two mid-rises, as well as open space, a public esplanade and a water taxi pier.

"637,700 sf, 50-story mixed use building with 360 residential units & 155 hotel rooms with 200 parking spaces." - Site photo doc

"Retail/Restaurant - 35,000; Hotel and Residential - 560,000; Parking - 130,000; 725,000 total. 400 dwelling units proposed. 325 parking spaces proposed.

On-street parking is currently provided along 5th Ave. This project is considering a valet drop-off space along 5th Ave. We are proposing to have a curb bulb installed on the corner of 5th and Virginia, ad an area to facilitate valet/vehicle drop-off along 5th Ave. Does SDOT foresee any concerns with this proposal?

What are the construction constraints with respect to the monorail?" - App for Land Use or Building Conference

Douglaston shows latest tweaks on design for 5th & Virginia tower
By JOURNAL STAFF

Douglaston Development has made some small changes to the design of its 45-story hotel and housing complex at Fifth and Virginia to address the nearby Escala condo tower and the monorail tracks.

The revised design shows more space between Douglaston's project and the Escala, shown here on the right. North-south setbacks also were added along the alley the two towers would share. The team also eliminated above-ground parking and lowered the height of the podium.

Douglaston's tower at 1933 Fifth Ave. would have an eight-level, 151-room hotel topped by 394 apartments, permit records show. There will be retail on the first two floors of the complex.

Douglaston's second early design guidance meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. Nov. 3 at City Hall, 600 Fifth Ave.

Perkins + Will is the architect.

Stanford Hotels Corp. is planning a 50-story tower — also a hotel topped by housing — that would share the half-block with Douglaston.

Douglaston is based in New York, and its website says it has three companies all led by Jeffrey Levine: Douglaston Development, Levine Builders and Clinton Management.

Over the past seven years, the website says, Douglaston has completed projects valued at $1.5 billion including 3,000 apartments, 2 million square feet of retail and 500 hotel rooms in New York City, as well as senior housing in the Southwest.

One of its major projects is in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn: a 1 million-square-foot, mixed-use complex called The Edge, on a seven-acre site along the East River. The Edge has 565 condos in two towers, 347 affordable units in two mid-rises, as well as open space, a public esplanade and a water taxi pier.

Residents of the high-end condo to the right, which apparently was featured in the book/movie "50 shades of gray," want this one stopped.

Doing so would be a sign of money's effect on politicians.
